St George Orthodox Church, Indiranagar Bangalore

As we look back to the growth & development of Orthodox churches in Bangalore, the Holy Trinity Church on M G Road, Bangalore stands out in its majesty & splendour. The first liturgical service was conducted in the Holy Trinity Church on 30 Nov 1947 by His Grace Most Rev. Mar Theodosis the Metropolitan of Quilon. The congregation was subsequently named as St George Orthodox Church, Bangalore. Post-independence the population of Syrian Christians in Bangalore grew & therefore new Orthodox congregations branched off from the mother church.

At the dawn of the new millennium, the existing members of the St George Orthodox Church under the stewardship of Very Rev. C M PhiliposeCor-Episcopa& with the blessing of the Diocesan Bishop His Grace Dr Yakob Mar Irenios decided to construct our own church in Indiranagar, doing away with sharing the premises of the Holy Trinity Church.

Towards the fulfillment of our cherished goal, a piece of land measuring 5000 sqft was acquired in the vicinity of the ESI Hospital in Indiranagar in the year 2002 at a cost of over Rs. 40 lacs. Our efforts fortified only because of the abundant gesture of goodwill shown by friends & partners from far & near. Above all, it was the spirit of service towards the cause displayed by the members of the congregation made it possible within a short span of time.

The foundation of the church building was laid on 14 May 2003 by the Diocesan Bishop H G Dr.Yakob Mar Irenaios. Since then the construction works are in progress. The church complex consisting of the Main Church on the 2nd floor, parsonage, a hall on the 1st floor with modern facilities like lift & basement parking is estimated to cost Rs. 150 lacs.
